The EUMASLI – European Master in Sign Language Interpreting offered by the Humak University of Applied Sciences strength lies in its international outlook and in its collaborative spirit. Organised and delivered by Magdeburg-Stendal University of Applied Sciences (Germany), Humak University of Applied Sciences (Finland) and Heriot-Watt University (Scotland), the programme brings together teachers and students from around the world in a joint effort to move the field of sign language interpreting forward. It affords scope for individual development and encourages cooperation across geographical, cultural and conceptual borders.
EUMASLI 3 is run by Heriot-Watt University in Scotland, Humak University of Applied Sciences in Finland and Magdeburg-Stendal University of Applied Sciences in Germany. Over the period of 2.5 years, students travel to participate in block-seminars at all partner universities and engage in online activities and self-study. Since 90 ECTS credits (i.e. the equivalent of 2,700 student working hours) are to be obtained, the work load is considerable.
